This is a lovely transfer-ware plate with Independence Hall as the central theme. The brown transfer has been enhanced with splashes of pink, green, blue and yellow color. The plate is 10.25" in diameter. There are no chips, flakes, cracks, crazing or any other damage I can detect. The back is stamped with a shield in which is "Independence Hall" under a string of stars, underneath which is "Within these historic walls, located in Philadelphia, the birth of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States took place." Underneath and to each side of the shield is "Oven Proof" and Brown & Richie Ltd." I can find no reference to Brown & Richie Ltd. being currently in business, only references to their lines being "discontinued".
I have other such plates, all with different scenes, for sale as well. I am always happy to combine your orders to save on shipping costs for you (also, I will gladly ship via Parcel Post when the weight of combined orders will save you money, just ask).
As always, all reasonable offers are welcomed and considered.
Enjoy each day!
